Jewish Organizations + Bloomerang Donor Management Software
Bloomerang understands the unique fundraising challenges of Jewish-based organizations. There’s no reason for technology to get in the way of aiding and supporting Jewish life and the greater faith-based community. That’s why numerous Jewish organizations nationwide have chosen Bloomerang’s donor database solution.
Below are just a few thoughts and success stories from organizations just like yours.
The Jewish Fertility Foundation provides financial assistance, educational awareness, and emotional support to Atlanta Jewish families who have medical fertility challenges.
Jewish Fertility Foundation was looking for a powerful donor management system that could grow with them and help them get organized. “We grew fast as an organization and had to get organized with our donors and clients,” said Elana Frank, Executive Director and Founder at Jewish Fertility Foundation.
After doing some research for their first database and interviewing people who were using Bloomerang, Elana and her team knew they’d found an affordable solution that could grow with them.
Jewish Fertility Foundation had finally found an easy-to-learn donor database that could give them more insight into their donors. Collecting and reporting on different areas of fundraising is a breeze with Bloomerang. Elana and her team had found a solution that could help them easily pull up reports that they need for their “board, fundraising, and accounting.” Bloomerang is an evolving, versatile system for a nonprofit’s fundraising needs. “It is catered to not only our donors but board members, clients, and beyond.”
The people at Bloomerang practice what they preach and are knowledgeable about the product and fundraising. Bloomerang takes customer needs into account when building out the product roadmap every year. That versatility plus the experienced customer support staff were another reason why Bloomerang appealed to Elana over other options. “If I can’t figure something out, the customer service chat feature is a lifesaver. If I need something that doesn’t yet exist I know that it will soon.”
Jewish Fertility Foundation has seen several fundraising pain points be alleviated since implementing Bloomerang. One such benefit is that the team now has a better understanding of “who gave what previously and when through which of our contacts.” Plus tracking their constituents and their needs and attributes through reporting is a breeze and has positively impacted their donor retention rate.
At the end of the day, Jewish Fertility Foundation has been able to fundraise more effectively and the results they’ve seen reflect that. “Before we started with Bloomerang we raised about $8,000 year one, year 2 we raised $38,000, and by year 3 we’re already at almost $180,000 and the year isn’t up.”
It’s amazing what a donor-centric tool built for fundraisers can do for the growth of an organization such as Jewish Fertility Foundation. “I sure wouldn’t be able to track donations, cultivation, and thank yous without Bloomerang.”
The mission of the Washington State Jewish Historical Society is to promote interest in and knowledge of the life, history, and culture of the Jewish people and communities of the State of Washington.
The Society is dedicated to discovering, preserving, and disseminating the history of the Jews of Washington State. This unique history is shared through publications, exhibits, displays, speakers, and tours.
Washington State Jewish Historical Society was looking for a donor management system at the same time they were looking for a website provider. They wanted something that was easy to use, but could still track the critical data that they needed it to. They were introduced to Bloomerang through Firespring, and realized that their need for a donor management system could finally be met.
Washington State Jewish Historical Society had found a system that could help them easily track their donor retention and constituent data. Bloomerang has been an asset for their donor retention and gift development processes.
Lisa Kranseler, Executive Director at Washington State Jewish Historical Society was originally drawn to Bloomerang’s capabilities, ease of use, and knowledgeable staff. “The ease, the service, the whole system seemed great.”
Lisa and her team simply can’t do without a donor management system in place. They’ve gained insights about their constituents that they never had before. “Love the way we can track people we never had the opportunity to before.”
Since implementing Bloomerang, Washington State Jewish Historical Society has benefited from improvements to several fundraising pain-points that were previously an issue. They no longer have to stress over “tracking on excel spreadsheets, notebooks, or sticky notes even.”
At the end of the day, one of the most important things Bloomerang does for Lisa and her team is help them leverage their donor data to increase donations. They love “being able to look back at the progress and records for each individual.”
It’s amazing what a user-friendly, data-focused tool can do for the long-term growth of an organization such as Washington State Jewish Historical Society.
